When I purchased the car from a friend back in 1986, we were lucky enough the be able to travel around Europe and the UK for several years, with only service requirements and general cleaning to keep this very enjoyable car on the road. Unfortunately, come 1992 the dreaded tin worm had started munching at the jacking points and sills that contained the oil pipes to the front cooler. This pointed out by my friendly MOT man required me to decide to try and sell the car or repair, I made the decision to take the car off the road and dry store it as a retirement project or to repair as funds became available. The mileage at this time was 90,409, I had covered approximately 10,400 miles in these first few years of fantastic driving. I have included a history file of some of the work that has been carried out along with Certificate of Authenticity some but not all bills, some recent valuations and all the MOT certificates I have had with the car.
